In segment two, Joe Goldstein jumps on to talk about the Baby Bulls and how they won the lamely names USL equivalent of the Supporter's Shield. The USL Regular Season Championship. Seriously guys, get your branding together. Who do you think you are, the NASL? Lolz. Joe breaks down what Red Bulls II will do against Orlando City B. The two discuss home field advantage and why the Rochester Rhinos could be the team to beat in the east. Lastly, the lads give their take on the USL deciding to use a bid process to determine who hosts the USL final, rather than having the team with the better record host.
